1.1 For the purposes of these Conditions, the following terms have the following meanings:
Conditions means these product supply terms and conditions;
Products means the products as more particularly described in the applicable quotation, order form, invoice, packing slip or purchase order for those products; and
Incoterms 2020 means the International Chamber of Commerce official rules for the interpretation of trade terms, which came into force on 1 January 2020, as amended or revised from time to time.
2.1 No quotation for Products will be binding on us if it is not given in writing.
2.2 Any quotation given by us for the Products will lapse and be invalid if it has not been accepted by you by the date for acceptance specified on the quotation form. If no date for acceptance is given on the quotation form, then the quotation will lapse and be invalid if it has not been accepted by you within 30 days following the date of issue of the quotation.
2.3 We may, but are not required to, agree to extend the date for acceptance of any quotation. No extension will be binding on us unless it has been given in writing.
2.4 We may withdraw a quotation at any time before acceptance by you. No quotation will be binding on us if the quotation was given based on incomplete, inaccurate or misleading information provided by you.

We may, for any reason and without any liability on our part, cancel any order for Products before delivery of the Products.
